    Finding great circle apex?
    From: Tony Oz
    Date: 2019 Jan 17, 02:54 -0800

    Hello!

    There was a discussion of GC (great circle) attributes like the maximum latitude reached when following such a route, etc.

    I can't seems to find this in the archive.

    Could you please help me with:

    • GC apex formula
    • position of GC "poles"

    Thank you in advance.

    Warm regards,

    Tony

    PS

    Honestly, I did try to search for this topic in the archive - was flooded with false-positive hits...
